In February, Egan Bernal went through the toughest trial of his life when he crashed into the rear of a bus. He suffered fractured vertebrae, a fractured right femur, a fractured right patella, chest trauma, a punctured lung, and several fractured ribs.
For recovery, he was admitted to the Clínica Universidad de La Sabana where he underwent spinal and other surgeries. With an iron will, Bernal did not give up, there were constant updates of him on social media. His recovery process is going extremely well and we could see him back to racing soon.
Bernal’s coach Xabier Artexte told La Gazzetta dello Sport:
He is working to get back as soon as possible. It could be 2023 but also the end of this year. We must not rule it out, far from it.
